The issues at the border seem to be escalating, according to The Western Journal.
Kaitlan Collins is seeking answers regarding the southern border.

CNN reporter to Jen Psaki:
"There are over 3700 children in border patrol jail-like facilities. How can you say that's not a crisis?"

“One last question on the border: The administration has refused to call it a ‘crisis,’ instead referring to it as a ‘challenge’ and saying what you call it doesn’t make a difference of how you’re responding to it,” Collins said. “Now, today there are over 3,700 children, unaccompanied migrant children, in border patrol custody.”
“They’re spending on average over 100 hours, four days in these facilities that are jail-like facilities not meant for children, so how can you say that’s not a crisis?” she asked.
Psaki was stunned.
“Well, I think what Ambassador Jacobson and Secretary Mayorkas were conveying, and what I’ve conveyed is it doesn’t matter what you call it. It is an enormous challenge. It is something that is front and center for the president,” Psaki said.
Collins added, “Aren’t those the steps that you would take if it was a crisis that you had on your hands?”
From the Western Journal:
There was no real answer from Psaki, as she’d been absolutely pummeled by a CNN reporter — of all people. She also never did state whether she would classify the border crisis as a crisis.
Could this be a sign of renewed hope that CNN and other networks might start seeking truth from Democratic elected officials? Probably not. But it is evidence that Biden’s lack of transparency is wearing thin on everyone — even hacks like Collins.
